More on Imus

April 19, 2008

I thank all of you that sent your responses from all over the country.

It seems that the prevailing attitude is to ignore Imus and render him irrelevant.

This is exactly why I wanted to bounce this off of my nationwide people. To get a perspective. One of my favorite responses came from the AAPP, who said “forget about Don Imus he is yesterday’s news, unless we make him today’s news,” and Eddie Griffin who said, “another Imus boycott would be a standoff and a lot of time and energy wasted, plus the negative repercussions on the election.”

After some thought I agree with them – many of you have called him on his remarks but he doesn’t deserve our pub. Maybe he’s trying to inject himself into the conversation and get unmerited attention.

By the way, I hope you saw that Barack drew 35,000 people at his Philadelphia rally on Friday. My hometown made me proud; now it’s on to watching the PA primaries and beyond.

Don Imus is at it Again

April 18, 2008

This time, Imus uses expletives to describe Barack Obama on his radio show, words that we don’t use on this website.

Imus wanted attention, and now he’s got it. It’s time we ended this nonsense and ignorant discourse in what should be a great time in our nation’s politics.

I am calling on my political blogger nation (and we are deep, believe me) to put an end to Don Imus’ career, once and for all. The nationwide political blogger groups should be called into action.

Link to the video is here (from MediaMatters).

Please link to this post and put the info out to your readers and sources. Just like Dunbar Village, the war against B.E.T. and other topics, it’s time for us bloggers to take the lead and make the establishment stand up and take notice. Join us in calling for the end of Imus’ hate-radio career.
